There was plenty of good eating, drinking and laughing recently, as the Afro American Police Officer’s Association (AAPOL), held their annual picnic. This event gives officers a chance to fellowship with others, see what they look like outside of the uniforms, let their spouses, children, parents and friends mingle with each other, as well as dance, show off their prized toys (motorcycles) and joke and laugh. My good friend Gary Hicks, Sr., was nice enough to invite me to this event as well as share his magnificent pictures with me. A good time was had by all, despite the soaring temperatures. Spotted were Tracy Richardson, President, Gary Hicks, Sr., Vice President, Tangela Nichols, Treasurer, Rhonda Williams, Board Member, Police Chief Charles McClelland, Executive Asst. Chief Michael Dirden, Lt. Mattie Provost, Hubert Watson served as the jammin DJ for the day.
